PCD Partnering with the Community

Early Intervention Specialists Sintia Attubato and Shelby Balukonis share ways that PCD helps to bridge the gaps that may exist in caring for young children. By partnering with advisory groups, parents/caregivers, public and private schools, libraries, medical offices, hospitals, community agencies and others. In EI we strive to improve outcomes for children and families.

EI Visits: Children are met where they are – developmentally, socially, and physically. Visits are often at home, childcare centers, family childcare, libraries, shelters, playgrounds, and so much more.

PCD staff: Are active members of community advisory committees and provide outreach and training to interested groups.

Connections for families: EI providers are quick to respond to a family’s needs. Assistance may be needed with newborn support, food/housing insecurity, referrals to specialists, area playgroups and parent support groups, or even finding an accessible playground or specialty equipment.

Transition after EI: Bridging gaps and coaching families moving on from EI (at age 3) to public and private preschools. Connecting children who would benefit from specialty services (such as vision, hearing, autism, and developmental delays) and out-patient therapies.

We are happy to partner with our community.
